Kditor, the News: Last week (Thursday) e went to Los Angeles, then on trolley car to the old San Pad re Mission, an all-day ride of about 100 miles through the orange groves. This trip is advertised for one dollar, but before you get back to Long Beach you have paid out $4.75. However, I do not regret it. The party was made up of tourists two cars of about SO. The genial conductor used a mega phone to point out the homes of weal thy people who have built elaborate places. Among them was the widow of President Garfield and many others too numerous to mention. Pasadena is certainly a beautiful city the best place I have yet seen, especially the Bush Garden. It is said to have cost $1,000,000 and it costs many thousands a year to keep it in order. It is certainly far grander than I can describe. Pasadena has wide streets that are kept clean and, in fact, I give Cali fornia credit for its well-kept cities and towns. ' i "1 J Interviews Orange Growers I walked through quite a number of the orange orchards and talked with the owners. They said that all the fruit was killed and they were shaking it off and plowing it under. Well, it was a sorrowful sight to see the yel low fruit on the trees and on the ground. They looked good but take one and you find it soft and what you might call mushy. I examined the trees. The twigs are frozen from four to eight inches and will have to be pruned back, which will be quite a task, while many trees are killed, more especially the nursery stock. From the car I could see acre after acre, mile after mile of oranges and nothing else. As they are not all rich the freeze will work a hardship on many. This country lies along the foothills of the snow-capped Sierre Mad re Mountain. The soil is mostly sand and gravel. Smudging Did Little Good Now about smudging. I could see no difference where the smudge pots were and where they were not used The pots are of woven wire about five inches high and three Inches in width. They resemble somewhat the grubs taken out of land that has been grub bed and sca'tered over the ground. We went on to the San Gabriel Mis sion, said to have been built A. D. 1771. We were through it from top to bot tom and will say tha it is a curio, but one that I did not care to put in my den, therefore I did not offer to pur chase it. Sees Ostrich Ranch The next stop was at the renowned Caweston Ostrich Farm on the foot hills of the treat Sierre Madre Moun tain. There are about 100 birds, large and small. It requires eight months to hatch them and when out of the shell they roll around cn the ground like footballs for several days, then make growth very fast. It was very amusing to see young girls and some older ones astride of one bird marching around the yard. Before they get on they drew what looked to me like a woman's stock ing over the bird's head. In feeding them a man would stand on a box about 4 ft high and then reach up with an orange. The bird would stretch up and take the orange In his mouth and it would slowly pass down his neck about six feet and disappear. In standing In this position the bird is about ten feet in height.. The yards or pens, of which there ar many, keep them separated at special times. When mated they are said to be married and never divorced. Los Angeles county has bonded for thousands of dollars to build roads and they have splendid thoroughfares thrughout the county. The residents seem to have that fac ulty of advertising more so than any other place on the coast. They send tons of literature all over the United States, and they seem to be very so ciable to all tourists, more especially the real estate men. The latter takes you out in autos and for free boat rides and point out all the places of interest, but rarely speak of the frost except to say that it never happened before. Now if Portland or Hood River could or would take the same Interest they would get more settlers as Ore gon has thousands or acres of the most productive land on the coast. Finds Poor Apples Now a word about our apples that are sent down here. I made a special Investigation of the apples that were on sale in the grocery stores and I found one box of Swars that were very good and they were the best I saw. I have talked with many tourists who all say, "Why, I supposed you had the best apples on earth, but If theae are a sample they are not one-half as good as those we have In Ohio, Indiana, Kansas and other states." Here, Is where the best apples should come as they rearh n.any .tourists from a dis tance and when you sen one person eating oranges you will see a dozen eating apples. Regarding the letter of Mr. Friday In regard to the appropriation as talk ed of by our representatives at Salem of $500,000 for the 'Frisco celebration, it is all right to make the grab but place it in making roads. I hereby coincide with Mr. Friday's letter. ROBERT RAND. ADVERTISED LETTERS Advertised letters at the local post- office are as follows: W R Allen, D E Anderson. Chas Bebee, Dolph E Brewer. Jesse B.

Marshall of Albany, Oregon, owns a farm lour miles east of that city, near Knox Butte, on which there Is a healthy and thriving apple orchard set out by a brother, A. G. Marshall, in 1857. The trees came from a nursery in the vicinity of Oregon City. There are several varieties of apples in this old orchard, but the Baldwins last year were as perfect as any fruit could be both in color and flavor. No special attention has been given the orchard, but It has been properly pruned and occasionally cultivated. HOOD RIVERITES ENTERTAINED Portland Telegram: Dr. and Mrs. John F. Beaumont, at their home, 481 East Fiftieth street. North, Saturday evening entertained a number of Hood River people, who are spending a few months in Portland. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Dickerson, Miss Grace Peck, Walter M. Dickerson, Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Deem, Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Ireland, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. King and Mr. and Mrs. Parvlin. Mrs. F. E. Deem gave a cumber of vocal solos and Mrs. Beaumont, piano selections, which added to the pleasure of the evening. A supper was served later and a most delightful evening was passed. Water for Irrigation Is Assured Baker. There Is more snow In the mountains of Easten Oregon at the present time than for several years past, and indications are that the com ing spring and summer will see more water available for irrigation and plac er mining than there has been for sev eral years. The deepest snow on the level reported from any of the nearby districts Is 12 feet atCable Cove In the Sumpter district, about 7000 feet above sea level. At Sumpter there is five feet on the level, at Greenhorn and Bourne nine feet, and about the same depth at Cornucopia, in the northeast end of the county. Will Lecture on Panama Canal L. M. Lepper of Portland has accept ed an invitation from the Hood River Commercial Club to deliver an illus trated lecture on the Panama Canal in that city March 1 at 2 p. m. This hour was fixed so that orchard men in tne valley could have the opportunity to hear the lecture. More than 100 pic tures of canal construction will be shown. YANKEES BLESS DR. HUTCHINSON "A supper Just before bedtime," says Dr. Woods Hutchinson, "Is Just as nu tritious and often more delightful than after getting up." He also advocates the use of pie twice a day and urges people to eat whatever they like to eat. It Is doubtful if the American people really realize what a grand man Dr. Hutchinson really is. Would Survey Water Resource It is Bald to be likely the ways and means committee of the House will re port favorably on the bills appropriat ing $50,000 for a revolving fund for the survey of the water resources of the state and $500,000 for completion of the old Columbia Southern irriga tion project In Crook county. Yukon Talks to Florida Four thousand miles overland is the new record for long distance wireless communication held by the United States army station at Eagle, Alaska, 100 miles from Dawson, Y. T. The operator talked with Florida, having picked up the Key West station while It was In communication with Mare Island. WOMEN OF CHICAGO SELL APPLES CHEAP mx minion apples were placed on sale Friday in 300 Chicago stores as a test of the theory that reduced prices will increase consumption in a ratio that will protect the business of the wholesale dealers. The women of the Chicago Clean Food Club arranged with the dealers to sell 30,000 barrels of apples at prices far below those quoted up to this time. Baldwin and Grimes Golden apples sold for $3.50 per barrel, or 10 pounds for 25 cents. The previous price was from 50 cents to 60 cents per 10 pounds. Associated wun tne club women were the National Retailers' Assocla tton and the National Wholesale Asso ciation and the National Apple Grow ers' Association. The apples were on sale in about half of the grocery stores of Chicago. No money was Invested by the women, but they arranged the buying and sell lng prices and took orders for apples. In only a few cases were inferior goods offered or prices higher than those agreed to asked. PORTLAND'S BIG GROWTH SHOWN The assessed valuation of Portland has mounted steadily from $131,197,559 in 1906 to $308,975,220 in 1913, as shown by figures compiled by Auditor Barbur, while the increase in the an nual tax levy has been from 5 1-5 mills in 1906 to 7-10 mills in 1913, or 2.5 mills. The only year that did not show an Increase of several millions in assessed valuation over the preced. Ing year was 1909, when the valuation was $215, 836, 410, an Increase of only $256,465 over 1908. REPORT OF THE CONDITION OP THE HOOD RIVER BANKING &, TRUST CO.
